Ethical Humanism claims each person plays a part in creating our human world. So, are we proud of our handiwork? While Ethical Society members may have trouble living up to that belief, most human beings have never heard of the idea. Trying to live that principle could change our world and human beings can learn to find their meaning in life in positive involvement in their relations with others and the natural world. Ethical Humanism is a very good idea; we ought to spread the word.
